Hi list,

TMAC for Linux, is a bash program written for the purpose of changing the
MAC address of network interface cards in Linux OS, provided it has Bash
shell environment.
Please check the details and some sort of, funny description about it.

This has been successfully tested with Ubuntu system.
Suggestions are welcome.

I programmed such a little toolchain written in KSH already and tested
it. Back then no pdKSH was needed and it worked with almost all generic
shells if I remember correctly.

Shamelessly stolen from my own README:
The toolchain allows you to:
- choose and set a random MAC
- choose and set a random MAC of a specific vendor
- search for a vendor-specific MAC address-space
- search for a vendor if you do know the MAC
- using it in other scripts to do automated tasks if needed

Tested on: Darwin/DragonFly/FreeBSD/Linux/OpenBSD
Feedback is welcome because I think work should not get done twice...

If you like to take a look:

Kind regards,
